Movies This Week – 03-07-19
Despite the hype surrounding Ari Aster’s last movie Heriditary, I have to say I thought it was awful! The first hour was lots of fun and then it just fell apart. His next release Midsommar comes out on Friday, if you want to risk a limb. Reviews are fairly mixed!
Otherwise, there’s another Spider-man release which is enjoyable if you’re so inclined, along with and Never Look Away and Vita And Virginia. The Queen’s Corgi is one for the little people in your life.
Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
